Once upon a time, the norm was American politicians didn’t attack their domestic political opponents while overseas.
That’s long since been imploded by former Obama officials. Not only do they attack President Donald Trump while overseas, they even seem to actively try to undermine him, even with things like secret meetings with enemy countries like Iran.
Reuters covered Hillary Clinton while she was visiting in Berlin and showed in a video how she had no problem not only attacking President Donald Trump, but undermining him and spreading disinformation about the last election, even as she decried the spread of disinformation on the Internet.

Asked about the 2020 election, she said, “Well, I just want to make sure we can beat the current president who I think has done a lot of damage to the country and the world,” she sniped. “So I just want whoever is nominated to be able to win.” She continued, “There is so much disinformation, some of it just sloppy and negligent, and some of it very deliberate.” That’s when she went full bore into the lies. “Obviously, we know the Russians are continuing to try to choose our next president, like they chose our last one, and we just have to be more vigilant. People have to pay attention to try to get the best possible information. Don’t believe everything you see on the internet. That is one of the greatest challenges facing democracy right now.”
Unreal. She just told the Germans that the Russians picked our last president. That’s outright delusional and not supported by facts/reality. And she’s complaining about disinformation as she puts that huge whopper out there?
Not only did the Mueller report debunk the 2016 claim, the more recent false story, which Clinton also immediately latched on to and pushed was also debunked and had no intelligence behind it.
The DNC and the Clinton team paid a foreign national, Christopher Steele, through Fusion GPS and their attorneys, to get Russian information to spread against Trump. Maybe she’s the last one who should be talking about disinformation when she was such a critical figure in helping to spread it?
